    oh, oh, now i understand and yes, you are correct, the binding is not flush with the sides of the body.

    someday i will get around to doing that. right now i've just enjoyed playing her and showing her off to friends.

    btw, i did buy the correct bit for this stewmac binding so when i build again i won't have that issue.

    73custom, you do not need to buy expensive stuff from SM. I'm using the same 0.5" trim bit and I realized that the 3/8 bearing doesn't work for, so I have ordered online 5/16" bearing for 3/16" shaft which give me .09" , and I paid $4 for the bearing.

    When I look at your pictures I smell that fresh nitro smell that you get from a guitar case. Its such a good smell.

    Darn.


    It's threads like these that have me uploading images to mylespaul, as opposed to having them hosted somewhere.

    73Custom hasn't been around in years, and this looks like it could have been pretty informative.

    I'm still alive, just haven't built any guitars in years.

    My new house I am building should provide me a small shop again...

    Will build again in the next year or so...

    I will have to go back and review this thread when time permits. I'm not sure what happened all the pictures.

    I believe I have most of them on my computer...

    I sure appreciate the thread you wrote here, and all the work you put into it.

    When's the new house being built? It'd be nice to have a little shop.

    I remember see this thread a few years ago with all the photos. This was going to be the thread I came to when I was ready to try to build. It's to bad that all the photos are no longer here.
